The area

In the area of Penicuik, 12 miles from Edinburgh city centre, the pub is a 15-minute walk from the main high street. It is situated in a busy neighbourhood with many families and close to several new housing developments. Approximately 11,000 people (aged 18 and over) live within a 20-minute walk of the pub, with this number set to grow.


There are six pubs within a 20-minute walk, and the high street features a range of independent bars, cafes, and chains. The pub has 65 internal covers, and a complete external redecoration of the signage will rename the pub, significantly enhancing its kerb appeal
